New FO for October

Usually when the New FO party at Cat Patches rolls around I get to feel like an overachiever, I have finished quilts to show. Not this month. 
First I made this

After last months FMQ Challenge I became fascinated with stencils so I made this to quilt with stencils, unfortunately it took almost a month for them to arrive, so just a quilt top to show.

Then I needed to make a baby quilt, but when putting the blocks together I didn't like the intensity of the colors for a baby, so it morphed into a twin quilt, which I am seriously procrastinating quilting. 

Then I made the baby quilted I needed with the same fabric, I seemed to have an obsession with this fabric.

Nothing got quilted this month and now I have the hated pile of UFO's. 

I made a ton of Christmas stockings, I like to put candy or small gifts in them. Some will be filled with homemade dog biscuits for the terrible twin's friends. 

I did spend a lot of time on the phone with family and friends in the northeast. David and I both have family who live about 60 miles inland from Atlantic City. All are safe and accounted for, but it's not fun being on the other side watching all of that unfold and yes Mom I know how it feels now. 

Why not hop on over to Cat Patches and check out the other FO's and think about joining in, remember it's all about starting something, you don't have to ever finish it :)

Later gators,


  1. Lots of great spaces in all of these to show off your FMQ. I resist calling them "negative space" - in my mind there is Nothing negative about a quilt! Good to hear your family are all safe and sound. Ours in upstate NY are OK as well, but stepdaughter and family are stuck in Florida for a few extra days with all the flight cancellations. Her kids don't mind - they're in Orlando at Disneyworld!

  2. I love these, Dana. Beautiful colors and patterns. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love the quilt tops. the colours are beautiful.

  4. Great projects. Love the fabric too!

  5. Glad your family is well and safe. Love your block and baby quilt!

  6. Glad to hear your family is ok. Storm Sandy certainly has created havoc for many. Very sad.

    Your quilts and stockings are beautiful. Great idea to make small stockings and fill with candy, as well as use some for friends of the four legged kids. Inspirational...I'll try to create a pattern and make some soon.
